Payment Plans

The College offers two different installment payment plans depending on whether you are paying domestically or internationally.

  • Domestic students may enroll in the ACI Payment Plan (an enrollment fee is required), and make monthly and or biweekly payments using U.S. currency. The first installment and the enrollment fee are due with the application. Click here for the payment schedules currently offered.
  • International students may enroll in the PayMyTuition Payment Plan (an enrollment fee is required), and make monthly payments in their home currency. A down payment and an enrollment fee are due with the application. Click here for the payment schedules currently offered.
  • Terms for the payment plan contracts are monitored and budgets may be automatically adjusted to cover billed charges.  If financial aid is received or a class is dropped or added, you should review your agreement balance online through your plan servicer (ACI Payments, Inc. or PayMyTuition), contact Student Central at 617-228-2370 or e-mail to confirm the change.
  • Delinquent accounts will be subject to payment penalties, and may be denied the use of the payment plan in future semesters.
  • Full payment for some courses such as a mini semester, and midsemester courses are due at the time of registration. However, if a current payment plan exists, the balance and future payments due may be adjusted. A plan may not be available if the enrollment period has passed.

Third Party Billing

Students may submit a third party document or purchase order from an employer, etc. which allows the College to bill that party directly with no conditions or restrictions on payment. Documentation must be presented at the time of registration. Web registrants will need to present the third party documentation prior to registration to ensure your financial account is credited/coded or you may be dropped for non-payment.

Please note: Sometimes students may participate in a tuition reimbursement plan through their employer or an outside agency, this is not accepted as a payment guarantee. Typically, tuition reimbursement plans have restrictions or contingencies in place (dollar amount, passing grades, etc.) therefore students are responsible for making payment in full or enrolling in a payment plan by the published due date. It is the students’ responsibility to seek reimbursement from their sponsor/employer directly upon meeting their reimbursement requirements.

Students who have any outstanding financial obligations to the College are not permitted to register.
